How One of Our Own Lost 110 Pounds
Acupuncture is well known to effectively treat pain, insomnia and allergies but did you know it can also be used for weight loss?
Our own practitioner, Alex Goldberg, is a testament to this. He lost 110 lbs by using acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas and changing his diet.
In 1999, feeling fed up with being overweight and struggling with daily bouts of fatigue, exhaustion, and insomnia, Alex began the journey of weight loss. He began getting acupuncture, taking Chinese herbal formulas, and became a vegetarian. In one year he lost 60 pounds. Since then he has lost another 50 pounds. And guess what...not one pound was ever lost by working out, going to the gym or doing any other form of exercise. He lost over 100 pounds by simply eating right and incorporating Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
We not only uses acupuncture for our own benefit, we successfully help patients achieve their weight loss goals. Recently, our 53 year old patient has lost 45 lbs and is now eligible for a necessary hip surgery.
